As the school year closes with final exams and projects, so ends the Marco Island Charter Middle School (MICMS) Performance Art Club. They ended the season with a bang with the premier of “Misfit Gym Rats”, an original piece written and directed by Club Director Gina Sisbarro of Sisbarro Acting Studio. The play was based on true to life characters, “boot campers”, from Sisbarro’s own fitness club. Listening to her fellow workout buddies provided her with dialog from her own gab sessions at the gym to create this hilarious play about your average women in a gym verses the serious work-out group. It has a vibe very much like the movie “Dodgeball”.
The theater club performed to two packed houses and their amazingly expert deliveries had the crowd rolling with laughter and applauding loudly to the dance numbers, especially the famous “Zsa Zsa Mop Dance” and the winning performance dance at the gym competition. The club worked hard year-round with extra practices on Saturday and what those in the theater call “Hell Week”, the week of the performance. MICMS facility, parents and theater club members are proud of what happened on stage, placing MICMS on the map for talent beyond compare. Check out the summer camp at the YMCA as well as the theater tots and workshops offered. Visit www.sisbarroactingstudio.com.
